There are walkways with gravel top in the park area along Weizenbergi Street and in front of the museum. Parking is available on the gravel-covered area in front of the museum. Ramps will be installed if you give notification of your visit in advance. There is a removable ramp (9%) outside, width 1 m, front edge 4 cm, and another removable ramp inside (10%; height of step 15 cm). A wheelchair user can use a lift to access the main floor of the Kadriorg Castle (the main hall, the exhibition hall, the permanent exhibition) and the left wing of the 3rd floor (the Netherlands exhibition). The stairs leading to the building have steps of 14 cm, and the removable ramp has a slope of 19%. A removable ramp (17%) is used at the cloakroom and cafe stairs. The threshold of the accessible toilet is 5 cm. The texts of the permanent exhibition have very small letters. If you wish to visit the museum with a guide dog, please inform the museum's Information Desk in advance.

This grand, baroque palace built for Peter the Great in 1718 now houses the Art Museum of Estonia's foreign collection.

A trip to Tallinn isn’t a trip to Tallinn without a visit to the northern Baroque palace. Designed by Italian architect Niccolo Michetti, the palace and surrounding manicured gardens are a humbling example of Tsarist extravagance.

In its current role as the Kadriorg Art Museum, it displays hundreds of 16th- to 20th-century paintings by Western and Russian artists, as well as prints, sculptures and other works.

While here, don't miss the decadent, two-storey main hall, with its elaborately painted ceiling and stucco work, or the room used as an office by Estonia's head of state before the nearby Presidential Palace was built.

Surrounding the Palace are several interesting palace side buildings. For example, the restored kitchen building houses a cosy art museum called the Mikkel Museum, and the humble summer cottage is the Peter I House Museum. The palace governor’s house (the castellan’s house) is now home to the Kastellaanimaja Gallery and the Eduard Vilde House Museum.

Entrance is free with Tallinn Card.

We almost didn’t go after reading some of the bad reviews, but I’m so glad we didn’t listen to the naysayers... it was beautiful, quiet, interesting and a nice escape from the crowds in Old Town... Read more
